A federal high Court in Abuja has granted bail to former Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.
The terms for the bail condition are the same as those that were enforced during the administrative bail of the defendant by the EFCC.
The court, however, added that the defendant should by no means procure an alternate Passport.
Delivering a ruling on the bail application, Justice Adeyemi Ajayi said irrespective of the allegations leveled against the defendant, he is innocent until proven guilty.
She noted that bail is a constitutional right, which the court exercises discretion over.
The same bail conditions are applicable to the other defendants.
Prosecuting counsel Rotimi Jacobs expressed displeasure over the court’s leniency in granting bail to the defendants by adopting the terms of the administrative bail earlier granted them.
The defendants were also ordered not to leave the FCT without the express permission of the court.
